Quick recap of day three where two Suns helped their team go 2-0, while another suffered to an 0-2 hole.
Goran Dragic led his team in points (17), rebounds (6), assists (7) and steals (2) and made two tough baskets at the end to help Slovenia clinch against a Spain team so good that Jose Calderon and Ricky Rubio are backups.
"It was a really tough game for both sides, but we played as a team, we shared the ball when we needed to score, and played tough defence," said Goran Dragic. "We only had six turnovers, which is great in a game like this."
The Suns newest player, Slava Kravtsov, chipped in 15 and 8 for Ukarine to beat Omri Casspi's Israel.
Marcin Gortat, on the other hand, is not having as much fun at Eurobasket as his teammates. He and Maciej Lampe (on one-time Sun in fact) were supposed to dominate the Czech Republic inside, but instead the smallish Czech's used Jan Vesely at the 5 to frustrate Poland with speed and finesses. Jan Vesely had a huge game that Washington fans can only dream about: 23 points, 14 rebounds (7 offensive), and 4 steals.
The Czech Republic stunned Poland in the final seconds. Check out the highlights.
Each team has 3 more "pool play" games before the top 3 in each Group advances to the elimination tournament.
As of this writing, Ukraine is winning again (39-30) at halftime.
